A Bristol property management company has taken delivery of tonnes of rock salt as it seeks to protect residents in over 160 buildings in Bristol from the worst of the winter weather.


BNS Management Services, based in Downend, has acted after predictions that it will be a harsh winter. They manage apartment blocks, flats and residential developments throughout the Greater Bristol area.


Directors at the company have made the moves after a busy month dealing with flood and water damage to buildings across the South West.


BNS managing director Andrew Simmonds said: "We've faced a busy time in the past few weeks dealing with the wet weather. Our maintenance men have been called out at all hours of the morning to deal with broken roofs and fire alarms going off. We spent hours pumping out a flooded basement and ultimately helped to prevent further damage.


"The benefit of having a block management agency is that residents know we are only a phone call away when anything happens. It takes the stress and responsibility away from them and the immediate service means less damage in done."


BNS Management, run by brothers Andrew and Ian Simmonds, has a reputation for strong local connections, rapid response times and reliability establishing it as one of the region's leading property management agents. It offers different levels of service for both large and small properties.


Andrew continued: "We know that the key to good property management is good preparation. We are now making provisions for the cold spell so that the blocks we look after are affected as little as possible.


"I would urge all leaseholders and landlords in Bristol to ensure that their blocks are up to standard. I would suggest buying in plenty of rock salt, ensuring enough maintenance personnel are on call and checking all heating systems are in top condition."
